Young Cancer Patient Already Planned His Own Funeral – You Won’t Believe What Happened Just 5 Days After a Controversial Treatment…


Some forces in the world are so strong that they overtake fear and pain with ease. Such is the incredible strength of a mother when protecting her children. When Carrie Blackwell’s son Deryn exhausted all options of modern medicine, she risked spending 14 years behind bars in an effort to give him cannabis with hopes of alleviating his symptoms.

This risky choice not only alleviated her son’s suffering, but also became the missing piece that led to his recovery.

This recovery was astonishing as Deryn’s health and comfort levels improved rapidly. A controversial, oftentimes seen as ‘forbidden’ remedy helped to facilitate his healing, according to his mother.

At the age of 10, Deryn was diagnosed with leukemia, and two years later he developed an extremely rare cancer called Langerhans cell sarcoma, which appeared in his tonsils. Langerhans cell sarcoma had only been reported in English literature a total of 37 times at the time of his diagnosis in 17, and Deryn was one of a small number of people said to have had it at the time.

Not only did he have this rare cancer, he is was also said to be the only boy in the world to have two different types of rare cancer at the same time. For this reason, he has been called “The Boy in 7 Billion,” which is also the name of Carrie’s book, which tells Deryn’s story in full detail.

Deryn Blackwell’s Struggle to Survive

Deryn originally had several unsuccessful bone marrow transplants, which left his immune system shut down. He survived while taking antibiotics for quite some time. And after a four-year battle, at the age of 14, he was placed into a children’s hospice.

“Standing in the dimly lit bedroom in the hospice looking over the body of my sleeping eldest son, I couldn’t hold back the words, or emotions, any longer. As tears rolled down my face, my thoughts came tumbling out loud… ‘This isn’t fair, this isn’t right. You’re only 14 years old,'” writes Carrie in her book.

At the time, Deryn was only given a few days left to live. Yet, he was in such an unimaginable pain and suffering that he wanted to and attempted to kill himself. He even begged his mom to take him to Brussels, because he heard that there, it is legal to use euthanasia for children over the age of 12.

“It sounds awful, but he looked forward to dying because after being ill for four years, he just wanted an end to it,” Carrie said.

Feeling desperate, she did something she was absolutely hesitant to do for a long time – she gave her son a cannabis tincture in hopes that it would relieve his pain even a little bit. She had no hopes of her son surviving, as he had already planned his funeral. She also knew was she did was illegal in the U.K.

“I was willing to face 14 years, every single day of 14-year sentence, just to give him the alleviation that it gave him,” she said.


Cannabis worked immediately – Deryn felt relaxed, and was no longer anxious or in pain.

For his mom, that is more than she could have ever asked for, an outcome that brought signs of relaxation, joy and happiness back to her face. But something remarkable, something completely unexpected also happened. After five days of cannabis, Deryn’s body began producing white blood cells needed his body needed to heal. By day 104, he felt completely well.

“Honestly the effects of it blew my mind. It wasn’t what I expected,” Carrie told This Morning show.

She asked the doctor if it could be any drugs that they gave him and was told – no. She says she even tested if it was the cannabis by stopping this treatment, and the white blood count fell again.

Carrie did not believe that cannabis cured Deryn, yet she could come up with no other, more relatable reasons as to why he was healed.

Some called Deryn’s recovery a “medical miracle.” Many do not believe in miracles, and yet, Deryn survived and soon left the hospital.

Deryn Blackwell was interview at the 2019 Hemp & CBD Expo, sharing additional details of his incredible story.


Medical Cannabis Shown to Kill Cancer Cells in a Medical Setting 

Many studies, even quoted by the American Cancer Organization, have shown cannabis’ powerful ability to kill cancer cells in the lab: cannabinoids (active compounds in marijuana and CBD) prevent tumor growth and promote cancer cell death in rats and mice, reduce the risk of colon cancer in mice, and kill liver cancer cells.

Besides killing cancer cells, studies have also shown cannabis to be useful for stimulating appetite (a problem for many cancer patients), relieving pain, controlling nausea caused by chemo, and calming anxiety.

Deryn’s Mother’s Perspective on Cannabis and Cancer Treatment

Deryn’s mom herself insisted that she does never claim and does not believe that cannabis cured Deryn.

She spoke out after Deryn’s healing journey stating that she wants the medical establishment to do more research to find out the healing properties of cannabinoids in an in-depth fashion.

Cannabis helped to heal Daryn’s immune system, and if it was not for cannabis, he might not have made it through.

Today, Carrie is an active advocate for medical cannabis research. She traveled overseas to meet with pioneers of cannabis healing research. You can follow her mission on her website, and read the emotional story of her son in the book “The Boy in 7 Billion.”
